[html] My name Is Kent, VE4KEH, and I’ve recently accepted an assignment maintaining the Environment Canada Weather Radio (and ATAD) network in the Prairies.  I would like to ask the ARES ECs in Alberta and Saskatchewan if they would canvass their CANWARN members to act as rosources to assist in monitoring the network. Would you please forward this request to them, and ask that they contact me?  Either my work or RAC address is fine. Kent Haase
